On Friday, December 4, the #23 DI Razorbacks (12-11-1) took on the #21 Missouri State Ice Bears in Springfield, Missouri. After staking a 1-0 lead midway through the first period, the Ice Bears tied things up in the second. With the score tied 1-1 entering the third, a pair of final frame goals sent the Hogs onto a 3-1 win. Arkansas looks for the sweep against the Bears on Saturday at 7 pm. The game will be broadcast live on Web Sports Radio.
Meanwhile, back home, the DIII Razorbacks (20-1-1, #5 Pacific) earned a 6-3 win over DII Kansas. A game that began as a see-saw affair saw the Hogs trailing 2-1 in the third period. But a 5 goal outburst in the third period, including a final empty-net goal, earned the Hogs a 6-3 victory and the team’s twentieth win on the season. The DIII Razorbacks are home again on Saturday afternoon, December 5, at 4 pm for Senior Night. Fans who are unable to attend the game can listen live on the program’s Mixlr feed.
